On June 21, Family & Children’s Association is holding its annual Scholarship Reception to raise money to help Long Island’s neediest youth fulfill their dreams of attending college. This event raises funds to help financially-challenged clients of the agency, who have risen above many of life’s challenges such as abuse, foster care or homelessness. The evening begins at the Jericho Terrace at 6 p.m. with mock-cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres followed by a scrumptious buffet; individual tickets are $250. This year’s honoree is Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice. To help transform the life of a deserving young person by contributing to a scholarship or to attend the reception, please call (516) 746-0350 ext. 364. Or, you can make an online donation at: http://familyandchildrens.donorpages.com/ScholarshipDonation/marisapaladino. Family & Children’s Association is one of Long Island’s oldest and largest human care agencies serving over 40,000 of our neighbors in need each year.
